Another big accomplishment the Niles North team has made is a 3rd place finish in the Pat Grant Invite at Niles West on August 8.   After a trip to Springfield and a day of long, hard tennis, junior, Zarina Sayed finishedwith a 2nd place medal. “I feel like I could have done much better and there is always room for improvement, but I have to remember there’s always a next time to do better and aim for first,” junior Zarina Sayed said.With conference matches starting the week of Sept. 10, the girls are ready to make their stand in this new conference and they have a lot of things to look forward to this season. “We’ve had some good wins and tough losses but overall I think we’re getting better as a team. I’m looking forward to conference games, the game vs. Niles West, and hopefully qualifying our 1st doubles for state,” junior captain Lisa Duan said.   Deerfield was the first conference match but Niles North fell short but bounced back in the next conference game vs Maine West in a shut-out, 7-0.
